GLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! MY F-LIST IS AWESOME!

[livejournal.com profile] b_dsaint INFORMS ME, IN THE POST THAT GREETS ME AT THE TOP OF MY F-LIST, THAT:

FRANK FUCKING IERO AND HIS LOVELY WIFE JAMIA ARE EXPECTING TWINS.

BRB, DANCING WITH JOY.

COBRA STARSHIP GIG TOMORROW NIGHT. NAILS STILL FLUORO. [livejournal.com profile] frankkincense LANDS IN MELBOURNE TONIGHT. TODAY IS PRETTY AUSPICIOUS, REALLY.

I'D APOLOGISE FOR THE CAPS ABUSE BUT I DON'T ACTUALLY FEEL ANY SENSE OF REMORSE.

So pretty much everybody who's spent more than 2 seconds enquiring about my plans for 2010 has been gleefully earbashed regarding the impending arrival of [livejournal.com profile] frankkincense. So, pretty much everybody should have worked out by now that she's pretty damn awesome.

You guys, she is so damn awesome I don't have the words. Fortunately for me, she has words, and plenty of them. Brendon is a christmas fairy living in Ryan's tree! Go forth and read, because it's definitely a rec. :D

*squeak*

[ETA: why is there a sudden proliferation of Bob fic? I mean, dude - I'm totally not complaining. Bring on the Bob fic! ...but...why? It seems that all of my christmases have come at once. Dear bandom, keep up your excellent work.]

My neck is burned. Stupid summer sun. Go away, dnw.

Spent a lot of money with [livejournal.com profile] therathasspoken on Saturday. For the record, we found the store we were looking for! After much trying on and admiring of clothing, and the ensuing indecision, we finally worked out what we were going to buy, bought it, and moseyed to Essendon for Bec's street party.

Yesterday I went to the Belgian Beer Garden for drinks with old acquaintances from uni. Jem was there, so I had somebody to cling to. I decided to walk home via Albert Park Lake, and stopped along the way at my favourite cafe for refuelling. :D


♥ This band, you guys.

HAI THAR LJ.

IF MY SUMMER GETS ANY MORE AWESOME, I'M GOING TO EXPLODE.

I JUST BOUGHT TICKETS FOR [livejournal.com profile] heffiethedragon [livejournal.com profile] dzurlady [livejournal.com profile] therathasspoken AND ME TO GO SEE MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE IN SYDNEY, THE NIGHT BEFORE SOUNDWAVE.

[livejournal.com profile] heffiethedragon LAST NIGHT INFORMED ME THAT RISE AGAINST HAVE ANNOUNCED A SEPARATE SHOW IN JANUARY AT THE HIFI. HOLY COW.

YOU GUYS, BRB - EXPLODING WITH GLEE.

Pete Wentz, how so adorable?
J-14: A lot of your lyrics are very deep and personal -- what is it like to hear Patrick Stump singing the words you wrote?
Pete: They make more sense to me. It's like I find the anthropological site and then he's the one who identifies the dinosaur -- he puts the pieces together. It's more therapeutic to me to watch somebody else do that and sing them. He also has the voice of a cute little angel.

In non-bandom news, [livejournal.com profile] gabyvarius was a star of the show last night, looking sumptuous in [livejournal.com profile] de_chel's corset. Damn, but she looked hot. Well done, sweetie - it was a fun night, and thanks for driving me home!

Camp starts tonight. Part of me is rejoicing, and part of me wants to crawl away and sleep.

Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. So.

I have my morning coffee perched faithfully beside me (I bypassed Mark-the-Belgian-coffee-maker this morning, in favour of catching the next train so I could get to work on time so I could secure tickets. I FORSOOK MORNING COFFEE FOR MCR, YOU GUYS. MY LOVE KNOWS NO BOUNDS.), so I am now set to face the day. Also, I may now go into hiding from the Society For The Protection Of Capslock Keys. Aha, sorry f-list.

Procrastinator [livejournal.com profile] why_am_i to the rescue!

So I was scouting around the dark recesses of the internet, trying to find amusing trivia questions for a work function, and plausible wrong answers to pad out MCQs, and I came across this gem of a website. I've copied my favourite comments below, but if you want more insightful commentary on insanity and general stupidity with a British slant, or you wish to simply remind yourself that there are still some reasonable people left in the world, head over and laugh or cry as you see fit.

JSYK: This relates to a politician named Nick Griffin, whose views fall in line with those of Pauline Hanson (I can't think of a US equivalent, but think of somebody who is racist and proud of it, and you'll get the idea). The bits in bold are comments that the website's authors have found in threads on various fora around the net. The bits in normal font are the commentary to those comments. My very favourite is the last one, even though it makes me *headdesk* repeatedly in an alarming fashion.

"Thanks to Liz for pointing me at the BNP Question Time thread. It’s actually rather reassuring, to see a party almost unanimously inducing massive, racist erections in HYSers, when we know only a fraction of the population would ever actually vote for them. It’s almost as if they’re just a small group making a lot of noise, who the majority of us disagree with, but stay silent because we don’t think they’re worth bothering with.

This is why I think they’re so impressed with Nick Griffin. These are people who spend all day in an environment where almost everyone has the same opinion, twice an hour, and the ones who don’t either get no recommendations, or give up on the fucking place and come here. Granted, it’s the ultra-left BBC, but it’s safe, sanitised, and everyone is either just like you or invisible. We find them here and not in the real world because differences of opinion and the idea of having to rethink their position actually rather frighten them. Meanwhile, Nick Griffin musters the courage to go on a BBC programme where everyone thinks he’s a racist twat, has seen videos of him being a Nazi and planning to lie about it, and is a lot cleverer than him. It’s as if there’s a thunderstorm and he’s actually peeped outside, while this lot are still quivering under the bed. ...

It was very biased against Nick Griffin. The audience was about 85% multicultural and the panel were hypocrites, one minute saying that the Daily Mail had freedom of speech and the next they were denouncing an elected political party for it’s views!
Where were the supporters of the BNP in this audience? Not allowed in, I suspect. It was a totally one-sided affair and even though I woul not vote BNP, I think the man had a lot of guts for coming on the show in the first place.

Rebecca Dwyer, Wakefield, United Kingdom


I feel quite sorry for Rebecca Dwyer. She obviously really wants to be clever and understand politics and stuff, but it’s always that half-inch away from her grasp. So she can never work out why the fat Scottish man and the young man with the long face and posh accent are always shouting at each other. And this is where bad euphemisms come back to bite the English language in the arse. Poor Rebecca’s clearly heard “freedom of speech” and “multiculturalism” used so often for “don’t criticise my opinions” and “wogs, assorted” that she genuinely thinks that’s what they mean.

Here’s Liz’s find. You remember back in GCSE English, when you had to read all those books, and, though you never admitted it at the time, there were a couple you quite liked. Obviously, it’s been years since then and you can’t really remember what they were about, but you had the same pencil-case right through to the end of your A-Levels, and will never forget the quotes you scratched inside the lid to get you through the day. ...

In the famous book “to kill a mockingbird” Atticus Finch tells his kids, bravery is not a man with a gun in his hand, but someone who knows they are going to be beaten before they start, but still goes ahead. Nick Griffin knew he wouldn’t get a fair hearing and would be raked over the coals. But he went ahead and aired his views, that makes him brave in my eyes and thats why I am voting BNP next election

Atticus Finch, Mockingbird town


At least it’s a change from ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four’."


If you are bored and require a study break, you can have a good giggle at these wonderful old superstitions. You might even learn some useful study tips, such as: "If you use the same pencil to take a test that you used for studying for the test, the pencil will remember the answers." Never forget that, kids! No need to stress about cramming, ever again.

Oh, this bandom advent calendar is on my wishlist, for no reason other than it is gratuitously pretty and kind of ridiculous, at the same time.

And also, Mikeyway looking precious and cradling a multicoloured unicorn might be my favourite thing ever: "When life gives you lemons, make a lemon themed analogy." - MW

Lolol!
Pete Wentz is going to appear on Australian Idiot, November 8th. I am very amused, and am also quite willing to admit that I'm planning to sell my soul for the second time this year and tune in for the lulz. :D

I need a spoon. :(

(Ahaha, on second thoughts, when spoons are in absentia, hands will do!)

[livejournal.com profile] therathasspoken and [livejournal.com profile] beachy_woods, I have a dilemma! WHICH SKIRT DO I PICK? I colour-matched with the vest when I got home, AND IT DIDN'T HELP ME TO MAKE A DECISION, THEY BOTH LOOK GREAT. HELP. *flails*

[livejournal.com profile] pyrrha_17, thanks for the boots and the badge - I'm planning to utilise both. [livejournal.com profile] gabyvarius, can I borrow your textas before Saturday night? On a related note, is anybody good at drawing or willing to give it a go? I need to add some tattoos to my arm to complete my costume... help would be appreciated. :)?

Because there needs to be more BCBryar love in the world.

This is primarily for the ever-wonderful [livejournal.com profile] frankkincense, whose one minor character flaw is that she does not worship at the altar of Bob Bryar. This mainly arises from a general paucity of education in the ways of MCR, no pun intended. I felt, however, that it needed to be remedied, and what better cure than a picspam?

Also put together with love to [livejournal.com profile] heffiethedragon, [livejournal.com profile] blindmouse, [livejournal.com profile] dzurlady and [livejournal.com profile] therathasspoken. Sorry it was so slow in the making, but I hope you enjoy!

Notes: not dial-up friendly.

Bob picspam right this way! )
